Authentic Tanzania Safaris Private Camp in Ruaha National Park

Since June 2009 Authentic Tanzania Safaris has operated intimate wilderness camping safaris in Ruaha National Park. Our camp is seasonal and is dismantled during the less productive game viewing months or when weather conditions make our sites inaccessible. We always leave a minimal carbon footprint.

The focus of the camp is to encourage guests to embrace the Tanzania Safari wilderness by taking you deep into the bush to a private campsite where you have no option but to awaken your senses and appreciate the unique natural environment of southern Tanzania on your Tanzania camping safari.

The camp is located in the heart of Ruaha National Park where wildlife is in close proximity and has been chosen specifically as a place to relax, get away from the stresses of day to day working conditions and come face to face with nature. Ruaha is undoubtedly one of Africa's greatest wildlife parks and is still largely undiscovered by most tour operators and Tanzania Safari tourists thus tourism is limited and this allows you to truly appreciate the wildlife in peace and away from other tourists on your Authentic Tanzania Safaris camping safari.

The camp consists of just 6 tents accommodating up to 12 guests for camping safaris.  Complete isolation and exclusively yours.
